So many options with this historic property!


Move straight into this lovely home with its many attractive features, then add your own personal touches – or develop this big corner block – there are so many options for this property! This almost 100-year-old home was owned by the same family for 65 years and has been updated by the current owner.

The home now features a large Tasmanian Oak kitchen cleverly lit during the day by solar power (without heat). This kitchen/dining room has soft close drawers, corner pantry, 4 point power tower and a pull out drawer for heavy appliances.

A large modern bathroom with step in tub has also been added.
Further additions include a delightful covered back deck, while extensive gardens provide a degree of privacy rarely found in more modern homes.

To add to your comfort in hot summers, the entire roof has been treated with Insultec.
The retained original features include a “breeze through”, where stained glass windows at both ends of the wide hallway provided a turn of the century forerunner of airconditioning. Stunning moulded cornices and ceilings are an attractive feature in the lounge room and hallway. The home has 12 foot high ceilings throughout, with a decorative fireplace, and tongue and groove walls. It has 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a study, reverse cycle air conditioning and fans. Original verandahs on three sides have been closed in, adding to the living space.

This block on a wide, quiet street in Cardiff South is 601 sqm and zoned R3 Medium Density residential so would suit an astute developer looking to build townhouses (with Council approval) or a family looking to design and build their dream home on a corner block. The block is also large enough for you to consider adding a stand-alone granny flat in addition to the current house.

This block is truly central – Cardiff Train Station and Cardiff Shops are an easy walk away, with Kotara, Warners Bay, Glendale and Charlestown shopping centres, plus John Hunter Hospital, just a few minutes by car. Public transport is directly across the road. Three Primary Schools and Cardiff High School are readily accessible.
